Productivity Tax or Tools?

Your success with your Effectiveness Habits and the supporting set of lists depend to a great extent on how you see them.

If you see the work of

as a tax, you’re sunk. If you see them as a set of tools you can pick from, modify, and leverage, you’re golden.

When I resist using these tools, I justify it by saying, “Oh, I’ve got too much to do now to waste time refreshing my lists (or feeling good, or cultivating a deeper sense of myself, etc.).” Then I know I’m seeing these tools as a tax. When I see them as useful tools, I dive right in and reap the benefits.


To your continued success!
